Field Trip This Friday
1) Eraser caps or large erasers
3) Black dry-erase markers
We have plenty of pencils from the beginning of the year, however many are unsharpened. If you have an electric pencil sharpener at home and would be willing to sharpen a box or two at home, that would really lighten our load at school. Please email me if you're able to help us out in this way.
Thank you so much for your support!
If you are sending your child with their BYOD permission slip, PLEASE be sure that you include the type of device, serial number, and description. If the device information is missing, I will have to send the permission slip back home and your child will not be allowed to use their device at school until I receive that information.
I'll be sending more information about how we will be using BYOD in our classroom in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please email me!
Family and Friends Lunch
Due to the Family and Friends lunch day for other grade levels, our lunch time will be affected on the following days: February 3 and February 10. Please do not plan to eat with your child on these days as we will be following our early release lunch schedule and eating in the room. Thank you!

About Ms. Bettler
My family means the world to me. We are all very close. We love going to Disney World - my brother and I are huge roller coaster junkies and nostalgic 20-somethings. We also love playing with our bichon frise puppy, Sophie. She is such a trouble maker! In June 2016 I'll add on an extension to the family when I marry my fiancee, David!
Music is a very important part of my life. I have been playing piano since I was six years old. I have also been involved in some sort of choir or band since fifth grade.
As a teacher, my goal is to make sure that students know how valuable they are! It's not about if a child is smart, but HOW a child is smart. I strive to help each child see their own potential to make a difference in this world and give them the tools to succeed.
